EDC is a State–based model that identifies and rapidly deploys proven, yet underutilized innovations to shorten the project delivery process, enhance roadway safety, reduce traffic congestion, and integrate automation. The summit is an integral component of the EDC model, bringing together transportation leaders and front-line professionals responsible for the development and delivery of highway projects. The EDC-6 summit was conducted virtually and included over 3000 attendees from State DOTs, local agencies, federal land management agencies, tribes and industry--to encourage creative thinking, and celebrate a shared vision for new opportunities.
EDC is Innovation for a Nation on the Move. In this cycle, the seven initiatives feature strategies to increase engagement with people, new applications of products to preserve and repair our infrastructure, and improve processes to save time on project delivery and incident management. The presentations, factsheets, videos, EDC virtual booths, and pdfs of innovations developed by the National State Transportation Innovation Council (STIC) Network are available on-demand to all registered participants through December 2021.
